Title: Non-Kahler Ricci flow singularities that converge to Kahler-Ricci solitons

Abstract: We describe Riemannian (non-Kahler) Ricci flow solutions that develop finite-time Type-I singularities whose parabolic dilations converge to a shrinking Kahler–Ricci soliton singularity model. More specifically, the singularity model for these solutions is the “blowdown soliton” discovered by Feldman, Ilmanen, and Knopf in 2003. Our results support the conjecture that the blowdown soliton is stable under Ricci flow. This work also provides the first set of rigorous examples of non-Kahler solutions of Ricci flow that become asymptotically Kahler, in suitable space-time neighborhoods of developing singularities, at rates that break scaling invariance. These results support the conjectured stability of the subspace of Kahler metrics under Ricci flow.
